New Wreaths for the Front Entry

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you had a lovely weekend. 

I was able to sleep past 8 am for the second time this summer, so it was a good one for me! 

Today I thought I'd show you the new wreaths that I put up on my front doors a couple of weeks ago. 

I was at JoAnn Fabrics, and I noticed the wreaths were 60% off, and they still had the ones I had been thinking about getting. 

For 60%off I could not get them in my cart fast enough!

I know that there are a ton of super talented crafting genius types that change out their wreaths almost as often as they change their shoes, but I am waaayyy to lazy er, um, I mean, I like to keep it simple. ;-)

I try to do a mostly green wreath, with a bit of white in it for spring and summer. When fall rolls around I will change them to something fitting, and then of course in the winter, I like to decorate the front doors with fresh evergreens for the holidays, and that stays for a while in the winter, minus the christmas ribbon, and then back to the standard green and white. 

Here are the wreaths I found on clearance...I decided to buy a few stems of white and green faux flowers to make them a little more full.
 Here's the way they came. They look pretty, but I wanted them a little more full. 

So, while I was at JoAnn's, I picked up a few faux stems on sale.
 I cut them down, and saved the leaves for latter in my craft stash. ...You never know, right?

 I broke out the glue gun, and in a few minutes, wound up with a pretty nice couple of wreaths for my double doors.




 I like that the white and green shows up nicely from the street, and looks fresh and clean.



Not bad! 

Have a great week! 
Thanks for stopping by!
